6:00pm
tampering, some salon on mail-in ballots have had trouble making it to election officials. instead, they somehow ended up in the gutter. jodi hernandez sis live in vallejo with a couple who found tampered ballots, not once, but twice? >> that couple walk their grandson to school through this neighborhood a couple of times a week, but what they came upon last week and the week before has left them very troubled. ballots, like this one, wet and crumpled up sitting in this gutter just inches from a storm drain. >> you could see where they tore it out of the bottom. >> reporter: it's a discovery that has bernice and waddle outraged. for the second time this month the couple found remnants of mail-in remnants tossed in the gutter near their vallejo home. >> in the street? no. this shouldn't be. >> two weeks ago, while out for
6:01pm
a walk the couple found three soggy ballots in the gutter. then last week in the very same spot, they discovered a voter's envelope with a ballot missing. >> i'm appalled. i'm appalled because i don't care whether it's a republican, democrat or independent or whatever it is. these people voted. they're americans and they voted and they have a right to vote and their vote has to be contacted. >> we attempted to contact the voter whose address and signature were on that envelope, so she wasn't home and they took it to the election's office where the registrar said with the first batch of tossed-out ballots they'll do all they can to reach the voter. >> the ballots and envelopes we receive in the office are in pristine shape. so there's almost never evidence of tampering or evidence like this. >> it's one of your rights to be an american, that you can vote and they took that away from him. >> the chavez's say they're
6:02pm
worried more voters' ballots could have been intercepted. they want an investigation. >> we don't know how many more they have done it to. if you have done it to the four that we found, how many more have they done it to? >>. >> reporter: now elections officials tell us that tampering with ballots is a federal offense punishable by up to three years behind bars. now, if you're concerned that your ballot perhaps got intercepted, you can check the status of that ballot by logging on to your county's registrar of voter's website or giving them a call. reporting live in vallejo, i'm jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, jodi. >> one of the propositions on the upcoming ballot is prop 30. its success or failure might hinge on undecided voters. it is governor brown's tax initiative to raise money for schools and colleges. a new field poll finds 48% are in favor of this tax initiative.
6:03pm
48% are opposed. 14% are undecided. prop 30 would hike the state sales tax by a quarter cent for four years, raising about $6 billion a year and help close the state's budget deficit. >> new at 6:00, san francisco police showed the suspect who beat and kicked a muni station agent last month. they want the public's help in identifying this man. the pictures show a tall, slender man about 35 to 30 years old carrying a bike or black suitcase. you see him right here. the victim, a 55-year-old station agent told the man that bikes are not allowed in the station. the suspect repeatedly ignored him as he made his way to the muni platform. once there the detectives say the man turned on the agent, kicking him and punching him, forcing him to the ground. he has not been able to return to work. >> if you know there could be a reward in your future. a fund is being established. investigators say robbery was the motive for last night's
6:04pm
deadly shooting of 50-year-old wilbur bartly. bartly was closing his cell phone store on international boulevard when police say he was confronted by one, perhaps two gunmen. bartly's death is considered a huge loss for the community. obviously, for his family, as well, but he was known for working with customers who had trouble paying their bills and he also handed out a hand to disadvantaged children. >> he did things for people that he didn't have to do them for. he did them without question, without reason. he just did. he gave continuously without a second thought. if he felt it was going to help you in any single way he would do that. bartly was also a neighborhood guy. he lived a few blocks away with his family. social media are useful
6:05pm
tools in police investigation and communication. a good example, a photograph of a 22-year-old vandalizing a muni bus on sunday right after the giants won the world series. that photo went viral and it led to an arrest. arturo santiago, that's becoming a key way for cops to find their people. >> reporter: that's right, jessica. this is a prime example of police and the community working together to catch a criminal and most of the progress in this investigation was made in cyberspace. the picture was published in the paper, posted on social media and then went viral. someone contacted the police department. they developed a lead, obtained a search warrant and arrested 22-year-old gregory grandis of san francisco. >> there was a lot of outrage on social media about this vandalism and someone was able to give us a tip and helped us solve this case. >> reporter: san francisco police are posting pictures and video of two suspects who set fire to the same vandalized muni
6:06pm
bus. >> we are reaching out to the people on social media to put these images out there and see if we can develop suspect information. >> reporter: jay segan posted the photo of vandalism on his facebook page and more than 5,000 commented on it and nearly 10,000 so-called liked it. he takes some pride in knowing social media led to an arrest. >> it's nice to be part of a community that helped do this. what's most powerful to me about it is the fact that this is millions of people all working together to make this happen. really, the only way this works is that everyone kept re-posting. >> reporter: police using social media has become an important tool for the mountain view police department. lieutenant chris jung tells me not only do they use it in active investigations, but it's opened a fast and efficient line of communication between the department and the community. sometimes it can be a little too fast. >> a lot of times people will tweet or put a post about an incident before they each call
6:07pm
911 which obviously we would hope it would be the other way around, but, you know, sometimes it is -- we do have to keep tabs on that. >> reporter: social media is a tool that law enforcement will continue to develop. lieutenant chung of the mountain view police department tells me that his department eventually would like to use it in its emergency alert system. >> live in san francisco, i'm arturo santiago, nbc bay area news. >> thank you. >> another grim discovery off the san mateo coastline. authorities found the body of a man near miramar beach in half moon bay. it is an adult male in his 40s. he was fully dressed in a jacket, jeans and boots with a cell phone and keys in his pocket. they said there were no obvious signs of trauma or cause of death. this was the third body found on san mateo county beaches in just 11 days and authorities say the deaths do not appear to be related. william ayers will stand
6:08pm
trial on charges that he molested several young patients. doctors at napa state hospital argue whether ayers was suffering from dementia. the judge sided with the psychologist who diagnosed ayers as faking his dementia symptoms. his first trial ended in a hung jury in 2009. demanding answers. a national non-profit group is speaking out after an nbc bay area investigation. >> on tuesday we exposed bay area schools which are not complying with title 9, a key federal law named to protect students from sexual harassment. >> reporter: equal rights advocates call the results of our investigation shocking and disturbing. the national non-profit is now questioning more than 100 school districts in the bay area about their title 9 policies. here's why. we uncovered an array of problems. principals who didn't know who the title 9 coordinator was. others who are the ci,inator and didn't know it and educators
6:09pm
who have no idea what title 9 is. equal rights advocates calls it widespread ignorance of basic, federal law. now they are asking districts to provide documentation showing they're in compliance. proof schools have coordinators, policies and procedures in place to protect students from sexual harassment. >> and i was shocked by some of the responses that were revealed in the report and it really shows, i think, the real story about what's happening at schools. >> our public information requests are exactly what schools should be doing every year. otherwise, the kinds of e-mails that you saw will be more and more pervasive and there will be more and more harassment at schools. >> reporter: the non-profit is hoping to identify gaps in compliance and encourage districts to take steps to fix the problem. as for who is overseeing school districts to make sure they are following the law. the office of civil rights is in charge of that. a spokesman told us they respond
6:10pm
to complaint, but no one is enforcing title 9 on a regular basis so they do not know who is complying and who's not. raj? >> thank you, jena. if you have a tip for one of the investigative reporters or the unit itself including issues while you try to vote next tuesday give us a call at 888-996-tippers on send us an e-mail directly to the unit at nbc bay area.com. okay. you certainly needed the umbrella and raincoat because the bay area woke up to rain today, but a big change is in store, jeff ranieri is live for us. keep the umbrella, put away the umbrella? >> we've had eight weeks with these extreme changes with temperatures in the 60s and then we go back to the 80s and the 90s and we have more coming up in the next seven-day period. the halloween storm did provide very impressive totals and it finally started to get out of here by 10:00 and 11:00 this morning this morning with a few of those struggling showers down into morgan hill and gilroy.
6:11pm
it is dry, but after those very impressive totals, 1.3 and santa rosa beat the old of 8600 set in 2008 and it definitely did help the water here. right now san francisco doing the best at 107% of average. how about those changes? we have some sunshine coming our way and that storm moves off to the east and high pressure builds in from the south and some slight, drying winds building in for not only 80s in the seven-day forecast and we could even be talking about record-setting heat in november as we head throughout the seven-day forecast and we'll detail it all for you coming up throughout the show. >> and we put away the raincoats. >> wow! still ahead at 6:00, the rare event leading to a traffic warning in the east bay which is coming tomorrow. >> also ahead, he certainly made
6:12pm
a statement, the player whose fashion choice has become a major point of discussion. >> judge scolded apple over what the company posted on its website. >> and an nbc bay area reality check on the ballot next week. we're coming right back. [ female announcer ] what would you call an ordinary breakfast pastry that's been wrapped in a flaky crust stuffed with a gooey center toasted up all golden brown then given a delicious design?
6:13pm
a toaster strudel. pillsbury toaster strudel. so delicious...so fun. with snack-defying, satisfying totino's pizza rolls. and now when you buy two 40-count bags, instantly get a free bottle of ranch from hidden valley. it's on. let's roll.
6:14pm
>> the next time you go it your local grocery store you might be greeted by striking union members. they plan to strike this sunday morning if both sides cannot agree on a new contract. a total of 32 bay area locations could see these striking employees. today in sacramento workers attended a rally saying they're fighting for retiree health care. >> we don't want them to take anything from us. we want them to know that we're standing together, that we're here solid as a union. we don't want them to take
6:15pm
anything from us. >> it is an unfortunate situation, but it's one that we have to have. it's necessary that we reduced our cost as it relates to operating in our stores so we can compete more competitively against the competition that's out there today. >> bothed sides are meeting with a mediator, if no agreement is reached by midnight, it will be the first strike the supermarket chain has had in its nearly 80-year history. >> is stirs up passionate feelin feelings -- that debate stretches back decades. the debate finds itself front and center in this year's election cycle as measure f in san francisco. in today's reality check, sam brk takes a look at claims both sides with another stand with
6:16pm
restoring hetch hetchy. >> there have been volumes of studies done on this very subject, in fact, seven studies in 25 years to prove it's either impossible to restore etch etchy, these statements cannot both be true at the same time so which one is it? we investigate. >> this is an idea that's absolutely insane. >> this isn't about the sins of the past. this is -- proposition f is about the opportunities of the future. >> outside the steps of san francisco's city hall, voters receive a taste of the bitter debate that's conflicted this community for so long. what to do about a natural habitat. hetchhetchy that's been damned for t damed for the better part of a century. they can decide the fate of the water and environment plan. an estimated $8 million plan of action for restoring the
6:17pm
stunning valley. here are the arguments being made. >> this has been studied serve times in the last 25 years. we do not need another study. it's not viable. it's not feasible. this is a complete waste of money. >> those seven studies concluded that san francisco does not need to store its water on a national park, but san francisco essentially boycotted those studies. so who's telling the truth? the san francisco supervisor or the author of measure f. they're both taking liberties with the information at hand. here are the seven studies conducted in the last 25 years, performed by state and federal governments and advocacy groups and universities. now let's take a look at the most recent ones. a 2005 restore hetchhetchy study identifies the river as the bay area's primary water source and notes that pruchling water from nearby cherry lake to a tributary can replace most of what's lost from hetchhetchy. other option include expanding
6:18pm
the reservoir farther downstream or calvaveras reservoir in the bay area, in the estimated cost of $1 billion. that makes no viable options false, but how expensive is the alternative? a state report from 2006 that takes into account all of the major components, water replacement and energy replacement and dam removal, restoring the valley and permitting, public use and legal costs came up with the price tag between $3 billion and $10 billion. furthermore, the authors write, quote, much studies remain to be done because there are major gaps in vital information. for example, objectives for replacing the water supply area in the first place. author mike marshall's claim for the city and bay area is also not substantiated by the research. >> so what are you supposed to make of all of this? you should vote for measure f if you think that more research and particularly research performed
6:19pm
by the city of san francisco will add clarity to the situation, but do know that seven previous studies haven't accomplished that yet. sam brock, nbc news. >> thank you, sam. >> let's turn things over to jeff. we got some rain, but it wasn't as bad a soaking as we got the last time around, right? >> we had a much more potent punch of weather here over the last two weeks and this proved to be a good soaker for us across the area. the doppler radar, we are currently finding dry conditions and this is going to lead us into an incredible weekend coming our way. let's look at the 48-hour rainfall totals from the slow-moving system and in san francisco, 1.3, and that's how rare it is to get this much rain. oakland with .83 and a huge disparity in oakland and it all depended on where you were with some of those moderate pockets of heavier rain, but it's all
6:20pm
gone right now. the temperatures were cool out here today with plenty of 60s. look at this other interesting fact. down into gilroy we had 63, a serve-degree disparity in those numbers and that's because we had gilroy hanging out with the showers quite a bit longer than everyone else this morning. right now numbers are down across the board with plenty of 50s and 60s, but get ready because here come changes in los gatos, from 66 today to sunday. 80 degrees and shorts weather coming our way. let's bring you outside to the live hd sky-cam network and we do have the cloud cover lingering and the roads are slipping so take it easy tonight and the dryer weather is going to be building. here we go, the storm system is starting to push here off to the east. high pressure building in like late august, early september so we do think not only with the warm air associated with it, and also slight offshore winds will produce mid-80s here into the
6:21pm
seven-day forecast and maybe even with the record-setting heat. it will spike up the allergy forecast and unfortunately going into the moderate levels as we head throughout the next 48 hours. as far as tomorrow goes we'll start a cold start especially in the interior valleys and 40s expected for the east in the south bay and maybe even in the north bay, we could have low 40s coming our way and also the cloud cover, by this afternoon, inland, throughout the interior valleys and 60s by the bay and low to mid-60s at the coastline. the three-day forecast, warming up as we head throughout saturday and sunday and don't forget that time change. it's coming on sunday and we don't want you to be late anywhere as we head throughout the end of the weekend and we'll have the next seven-day forecast and when the storm could arrive coming up later on. >> still ahead at 6:00, one county's new policy to prevent some undocumented immigrants from being deported even if they've broken the law. i'm scott budman in the
6:22pm
hypercompetitive silicon valley, we may have found the coolest benefit anywhere. coming up, how this company is saving time, money and the planet. and oaklandity hall in prime time. details of a possible new tv show, pretty interesting. we're back in a moment. this is hayden. that's elizabeth. and that's skyler... and his mom, nancy. they're just a few of the californians who took it on themselves to send you a message about what they need to restore years of cuts to their schools. prop thirty-eight. thirty-eight raises billions in new revenue - bypasses sacramento and sends every k through 12 dollar straight to our local schools...
6:23pm
every school. for them. for all of us. vote yes on thirty-eight. as part of a heart healthy diet. that's true. ...but you still have to go to the gym. ♪ the one and only, cheerios ...and now... you!

6:25pm
street-level escalators and something that will protect the moving stairs from wind and rain while also keeping people away during off hours. the canopies will also help with protecting riders from the bathroom habits left by some of the homeless. giants fans took advantage of public transportation for yesterday's victory parade. cal train had about 38,000 additional riders and bart set a sick single day record. more than half a million people rode bart yesterday beating the previous record set two years ago at the last world series parade for the giants. this was the 40% increase over a typical wednesday in october. bart officials used every train available to order -- to accommodate the crowds. >> tomorrow night cal will host its first-ever friday night football game at memorial stadium. and the city of berkeley has some advice to fans, better take public transportation. kickoff is at 6:00 p.m. against the washington huskes. several streetsa earned the campus will be closed to traffic

>> in health matters tonight, the search for healthy snacks in schools may still be a challenge for many students across the united states. a new pew study looked at numbers from across the nation and found most schools don't even have policies over what can be served in schools. low nutrient, high calorie snacks are found all around and most schools don't even sell fruit outside of lunchtime. congress called on for rules to help standards for snacks sold in schools and so far there hasn't been any action taken. >> doctors have long urged those r red hair, fair skin and freckles to stay away from the sun. now it turns out redheads may be at a higher risk of getting melanoma even without the sun. a recent study on mice says the pigment that gives rise to red hair is a potential trigger for melanoma. melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. >> let's turn things over to
